and on the united states supreme court. [applause] we have come so far carried we have come so far. why are we having to fight in 2012 against politicians who want to end access to birth control? it is likely woke up on a bad "mad men." "bad me [laughter] when mitt romney turns the clock back on process, the progress, it has real consequences. women like libby bruce, who you just heard from gary or women like a 27 year-old woman whose stage to press cancer was caught at a health center and thanked god she is now cancer free. [applause] or, the woman who went on facebook after paul ryan voted to defund planned parenthood and posted, i guess they do not understand us military wives go to planned parenthood when a doctor on base cannot see us. mr. romney and mr. ryan are campaigning for women's vote tby saying women need their help. this is coming from two men who would turn women's health-care decision over to our bosses and who will not even stand up for equal pay for women. my grandmother back in texas would have said, any more help from mitt romney, [unintelligible] here is the good news. we
of the united states, speaking directly to them with their faces, their words coming out and saying this was not u.s. government policy. that's the truth. >> i think it's not an apology. let's talk about how the people in the united states may feel. you know the people there well, but many people in the u.s. don't understand why a cheap internet movie that was made here in the u.s., not in pakistan, not -- how would you explain this cultural divide? >> we take very personally the importance of our protections for free speech, but in pakistan and elsewhere in the world it's beyond the law. it's beyond a constitutional. they are -- i have always found -- i have served for many muslim countries, muslim majority countries, and i have found the people to be very gracious, very welcoming, very accepting of my differences as a foreigner, and they expect and would like to be shown greater respect, and they find that this kind of video is highly disrespectful of them and it's offensive. now, that does not, as it did in libya, in any way excuse the violence or taking of civilian lives, the bu
reauthorization makes plain that discrimination is not the policy of these united states. it says no program funded by federal vawa dollars can turn away a domestic violence victim because of their sexual orientation or their gender identity, whether the victim is gay or straight, american indian, white, black or latino, in my view, madam president, and in the view of so many in this chamber, they deserve protection from abuse and justice for their abusers. there are two other important changes in this vawa reauthorization as passed through the senate. both of which help ensure we bring perpetrators to justice no national who their victims are or where the claims are committed. these help law enforcement to secure needed testimony from victims who are unwilling to come forward due to reasonable fears of deportation. so in total, all three of these important changes to the substance and scope of vawa i think strengthen it, i think carry forward its initial spirit and i think are completely appropriate things for this senate and the house to do in our every five-year reconsideration and reauth
not be photographed when those coffins got back to the united states. that change in policy under george w. bush was a source of anger and controversy. it is why coffins were sometimes used in anti-iraq war protests to visually represent those real caskets of americans killed in the war that the bush administration would not allow the country to see. the bush administration banned the media from showing those dignified transfer ceremonies as the invasion of iraq started in 2003. and they kept the policy in place throughout george w. bush's time in office. as the country waged two of the longest wars in our history. it was not until the new president replaced george w. bush that the ban was rescinded. on thursday, february 26th, 2009, just five weeks after president barack obama was inaugurated, the defense department lifted the ban and one week after the ban was lifted, the following thursday, the media was allowed to cover that solemn return ceremony for the first time in a long time. and maybe it is because we did go so long as a country without seeing images like this that we are a little roc
and grant their families peace and solace, and may god continue to bless the united states of america. >> greater love hath no man than this. that a man lay down his life for his friends. the flag they served under now carries them home. may god bless the memory of these men who laid down their lives for us all. may god watch over your families and all who loved them. and may god bless these united states of america. >> at this incredibly somber ceremony at andrews air force base today, remarks from both secretary of state hillary clinton and president obama at a time when both mr. obama and mrs. clinton as head of the state department, when they have to do things like addressing the nation while also managing in a hands-on way what is an ongoing and significant crisis for the country. protests at u.s. embassies grew and spread today. in egypt, in iraq, in india, in bangladesh, in turkey, in pakistan, in kuwait, in syria, where you might think they'd have other things on their minds. afghanistan, malaysia, nigeria, in lebanon where a kentucky fried chicken restaurant was torched. in t
speaker of the house, john boehner. >> welcome. let me just say ohio has a great united states senator in rob portman. he's been my friend for about 25 years and i remember about 22 years ago telling rob he ought to leaf the white house and go home and get himself ready to run for congress. let me tell you what, he's done a great job on behalf of cincinnati and a great job on behalf of ohio and the country in all of his roles in public service. rob, keep up the great job. republicans were lucky enough to win the majority 18 months ago. we promised the american people that it would not be about us, it would be about the american people. we promised to listen to the american people and follow their will. that's for 18 straight months, we have focused on the economy and jobs every single day. and you know, while we've done all of this good work in the house and done what the people have asked us to do, harry reid has blocked everything we sent over there. this is why it's important we elect josh man del and harry reid back to nevada. the president made a lot of promises in his campaign. m
. >>> a world on the brink. >> would you consider the current egyptian regime an ally to the united states? >> i don't know if we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. >> violence in response to a speech is not acceptable. >> we will bring their killers who justice. >> seen as a party on the brink. >> today romney is the only guy looking presidential. >> george bush's a rock, that's how you install a democracy in the middle east. >> the way you voiced it, it was pretty much what mitt romney said yesterday. >> i think this president is a winner. >> the first response to the united states must be outrage. >> we begin this afternoon with the president and secretary of state both working to address the ongoing crisis in libya, even as the nation continues to mourn the loss of ambassador stevens and three other senior members of the diplomatic staff. the has spoken to the leaders of both libya and egypt, inviting them to step up security while delivering marines and vessels to the region. these demonstrations are spreading to iran, bangladesh, so earlier today secretary of
has the judgment and character to be the president of the united states. this morning all of us were shocked to learn that chris stevens, our ambassador to libya, had been killed in an attack there, along with three other american diplomats, all murdered in what u.s. officials are now investigating as a possible terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11. while americans mourned, mr. romney saw a political opportunity. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. in my view, a disgraceful statement on the part of our administration to apologize for american values. >> sympathizing with them all, apologizing for our values? this is rough talk and ugly stuff and president obama responded. >> there's a broader lesson to be learned here. governor romney has a tendency to shoot first and aim later and as president, one of the things i've learned is that you can't do that, that it's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts and tha
respect our common humanity. i have made it clear that the united states had nothing to do with this video. it is an insult to muslims, and everyone. we are the home to muslims worship across our country. we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. host: more headlines following these speeches, "obama talks tough on mideast extremism." "uses addressed to regain the initiative on foreign policy." if you look at the front page of "the washington times" this , the right "the expected campaign advantage on foreign policy suddenly in doubt, the president portrayed the deaths of the americans in libya has inflamed tensions over an anti- islamic movie rather than tensions based on american policy in the middle east." from "the washington times," the headline says "romney, exchange for reform."

people. because the senate bill was inclusive and every woman member , republican, of the united states senate voted for it. everyone. that was the difference between the two bills. those who were included and a more specific group that are now included, which we think they ought to be, but we also think there aren't people include who had need to be. with all due respect i think my characterization was absolutely accurate. but it's interesting, mr. speaker, that we still haven't eabed the question -- answered the question. we tend to want to talk about other things. 98% of americans should not get a tax increase on january 1 that are making less than $250,000 individually as a family. i think we agree on that. mr. speaker, now i haven't heard that we don't agree on that but we agree on that which means there are 2% on which we do not agree. and that bill has not been brought to the floor that passed the united states senate dealing with that 98%. or 97% of small business. now, mr. speaker, it seems to me if we have agreement on 98% and the president of the united states will sign that
mohammed as blas fa mouse. we don't know if this person is base ed based in the united states and that's to whom the video is attributed as why the attacks were made on american properties abroad. we don't know if there were more complex reasons. this is not the first time that perceived criticism of islam has been reacted to violently in the muslim world. a florida pastor promoted what he was calling "burn a koran day." that spurred days of protests in afghanistan killing nine people there. in 2005 it was cartoons depict depicting the prophet mohammed. and u.s. service members accidentally burned copies of the koran in order to dispose of them. it sparked riots throughout afghanistan killing 30 people overall. but again, breaking news at this hour. a day of violent protests in libya and egypt. the american consulate and the american embassy in egypt. and reports still unconfirmed at this time that one american may have been killed at that consulate attack. this is an evolving story. we're still trying to get confirmation, but we'll update you as we learn more. that's tonight's breakin

of the united states. he will be speak later this will evening introduced by his wife dr. jill biden. then his mentor and friend senator dick durbin will introduce the president of united states for the acceptance speech. this crowd has been on its feet much of evening and the hall is very crowded. the crowd got up as one and roared its ak race for former -- acclamation for former congresswomanwoman gabrielle ge towards of arizona felled by a devastating gun shot to the head. slowly, painstakingly and with her friend debbie wasserman schultz of florida she came to the stage to lead the pledge of allegiance.

in the united states, but around the world. >> four years into a presidency examine it's incomplete? the president is asking people just to be patient with him? look, charlie, the kind of recession we had, we should be bouncing out of it, creating jobs. we're not creating jobs at near the pace we could. >> shep: before today's back and forth, our latest fox news poll showed governor romney and congressman paul ryan leading the president and vice president by two points when it comes to the economy. of course, that is a statistical tie. let's get things started with team fox coverage. carl cameron, campaign guy, live in vermont with governor romney. and ed henry live here. obama campaign staffers are saying the incomplete comment isn't really anything new at all. >> that's because you're right. he has said this before, when interviewers asked him. what they're not mentioning is that after his first year in office, oprah winfrey asked him this question and at that time, the president did not say incomplete. he said he deserved a b plus and said if he passed health care reform valley,

is enshrined in our laws . our constitution protects the right to free speech. here in the united states, countless publicications provoke offense. like me, the majorit of the merrence are christian and yet we don't ban blasphemy on our sacred beliefs. as president of our country and commander of chief of our military i accept people call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. >> steve: if the president continues to talk about freedom of speech we have in this country, that's true. but why the dumb movie? he kept referring to the movie as the cause of the movie. the administration said it is nootnot true. >> gretchen: i can think of countless other examples of freedom of speech . maybe he shouldn't have chosen himself of people speaking poorly approximate him. is that a plan because of the election? some people say yes including newt gingrich. >> hillary clinton is a serious problem. and barack obama is ambitious person. they are different. hillary clinton gets up every day thinking of public policy. barack obama gets up every day thinking about bark ob

-when the situation between the united states and the islamic world. what struck me with him, when the american flag was lifted down in libya where similar protests resulted in the tragic death of ambassador stevens. many people have not seen the video. many people have not read the side of rev. jones. they have simply heard about this video. they have heard about the efforts to denigrate the profit muhammed. i think it is a combination of hysteria and mass opportunism. it is unique to the internet age. host: what is happening right now in cairo? guest: there were a couple of protests last night. they seem to be more between youthful opportunists who like to fight with the police more than anything else. that is my understanding. host: would you say cairo is relatively calm right now? guest: host::can you hear me? would you say cairo is relatively calm? guest: it has been calm. even when the protests were going on, they were in a specific place. while there were demonstrators that scaled the fence of the wall of the embassy and took down the flag, there was never the frenzy that we saw in libya. wha
privilege as far as being a citizen of the united states to vote and be part of the process. that is all i have to say. host: frank newport, it sounded like from the comments last night by mitt romney that they were really focusing on from here on out approaching voters who had voted for obama in 2008 and looking to lure them to the romney campaign. is there any way that gallup will be checking that attempt? guest: absolutely straight -- absolutely. we track daily. for a republican to win, they have to pull back in some of those voters. if the same scenario happens this year that unfolded in 2008, obama is going to win again. republicans have two goals -- one is to activate the core republican voters and get them to turn out, which is easier for republicans and democrats, because republicans are more likely to vote. they have characteristics like age and education that make them more likely to vote. the second task is to pull down at 7% margin that obama had over mccain, so they have to come in to become a convert some of those people who went for obama to go to romney, or they were going
as president of the united states. [applause] look around you, everyone. this has been the most diverse, most inclusive convention ever held anywhere in the united states of america. [applause] a convention not just of symbolism, but of substance. this is the first time that a major party platform recognizes marriages equality as a basic human right. [applause] and this is the reflection of who we are as a party and who we can be as a nation. because as democrats, as americans, whenever we have opened up our party and our country, whenever we have opened up our doors for more of our people, whenever we deepen our democracy and renew our commitment to equal justice under the law, we have grown stronger as a nation. last week, in tampa, we were promised hard truths. they were right about one thing -- the truth was hard to find. [applause] that is why they did not talk about their plan to cut taxes for millionaires by raising taxes on middle-class families with kids, on your family, by $2,000. they did not talk about their plan to replace the guarantee of medicare with a coupon, with a voucher t
no longer function in what the united states has become. >> that issue about the legitimacy of the president and trying to other rise him, i found myself in reading the right-wing arguments, it's not just stuff from the blog world. it's definitely relatively respected republican pollsters starting to get on board. it made me start to think about let's say the election goes the way the polls say it's going to go. aren't they laying the groundwork to say he stole the lek? that his election is illegitima illegitimate? whether or not you think he's foreign, he couldn't possibly be a legitimate president for a second term. >> they are never going to acknowledge he's legitimately president. he can serve the full eight years. they are not going to acknowledge he was legitimate. but the question becomes, can it remain viable as a party? and the real problem that the republicans have, i mean the polls come after the fact. the polls are a reflection of what's going on in the united states. the real problem that the republicans have in this campaign is, they have a terrible candidate. mitt romney is no
a coalition of countries is holding iran accountable and that is why the united states must do when we must to prevent iran -- that last part, the we must do what we must to prevent iran obtaining nuclear weapon. what does that mean? will he launch u.s. military action. what will he do if israel launch as unilateral attack before the election against iran to stop its nuclear program? these are the major questions. martha: that is to the heart of it. that is what benjamin netanyahu said, wait, wait for what? this is the crux of the tension between the two. ed, thanks so much. be back to you in a little while. bill: we want to get back to carl cameron. you know what is on the plate, whether it is egypt, or iran's nuclear program, the dust-up with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. do you know from the campaign whether or not governor romney will address any of this or all of it or stay away? >> reporter: in the clinton global initiative he will larkly focus on issues he was sort of asked to speak about which is international development. he has specific ideas. linking foreign aid to o
